Works For Me Wednesday - Coffee Filters





Coffee Filters can be bought pretty cheap and can be used for a lot of different things....I am sure they are more but here are some that work for me!

Serving snacks (popcorn, chips, etc) the filters are disposable and less expensive than paper bowls or plates.

Prevent soil from draining out of flowerpots. When repotting, place a filter at the bottom, over the drainage hole, then add the soil.

(one of my favs) Protect hands from Popsicle drippage. Slide the wooden stick of an ice pop through a coffee filter so your hands stay mess-free.

Clean windows and glass. Coffee filters leave no lint or other residue.

Good tips! I was cutting a circle out of a paper plate for the popsicles - I didn't think about my coffee filters. And you're right! Must cheaper I might add!

Great tips! I buy my coffee filters at Costco so it's ultra cheap!

Great ideas. I especially like the flower pot use. Thanks!

I like the flowerpot idea too. Gotta try it soon.

Have you tried them for art projects? Watercolors, or markers with a drop or two of water added? They make pretty flowers when attached to the end of a green pipe cleaner!
